>> hi, jackie schechner. >> good morning. my athlete, my warrior my legend. >> stop that night now. >> you didn't get up this early to compromise. >> if someone yelled at me like that during a class, i would walk right out. if you're heart isn't exploding you're not doing well enough. you paid money for that? wow! >> five times a week, too. >> i don't get that at all. obsessive? >> no, seven she said five times a week. >> and i said obsessive much? >> i would do it eight days a week if i could. jackie, i needed some estrogen in the fort. how about the fox news website just as odious as the news
channel. i'll set it up, jackie wrote a great piece. in an editorial social critic, is that like a social liaison only somehow -- suzanne benker makes bold claims, like paul ryan and his ideas for the budget bold, courageous and horribly wrong. regarding the state of marriage. >> which is almost ago logical as the war on christmas. >> argues that women's emerging roles as breadwinners have caused them to become irritable and unappealing so called marriageable men. >> some of them. >> women have undergone radical transformations and become independent. [ eek ]
>> women are just not acting like traditional women anymore. >> fox is offering this up as news? >> your thoughts, jackie, contemporary woman? >> i did do a classic jackie your not helping piece on this. it should be posted sometime this morning. >> at current.com. >> it has been approved by the powers that be and just needs to be put on line. i will give you a tease. it's rare someone sends me an article so offensive that i don't know where to begin tearing it apart. >> it really, it hit me so to the core as such a disgusting misogynistist piece of crap that i had fun crafting it and recrafting it. >> if only women new their role at subservient second class
citizens we'd have much more respectful men wanting to get married. you say susan not only are you helping, you're delusional. it reaches for the same despicable tuesday used on battered women. >> the whole piece, the idea is that if we were just more subservient, more likable and willing to accept our gender roam as second class citizens to men, then more marriable men would come out of the wood work. >> right. >> i would argue that i don't want to marry a man who doesn't appreciate a strong, intelligent women. >> yeah. >> i think that's what's happening. it is not my responsibility for you to get your act together. >> right. >> that's the whole idea behind the article, is is that the reason why there aren't as many good men is because women are making it very hard for them to be responsible or respectful or
ambitious or, i don't know, motivated. >> whatever, i'll be up here on the couch. >> exactly. >> you will be playing the role of the knee ander that will all morning. >> maybe the traditional role has shifted but it doesn't mean it's my fault that you can't keep up! >> exactly. you should learn not to compete with me. i always win. >> you should learn not to compete with me! i always win. >> you didn't get up this early to compromise. shut up! some of these lines. men want to love women not compete with them. they want to provide for them and protect their families, it's in their d.n.a., but modern women won't let them. >> who is this chick. i bet she's really ugly.
>> oh, stop it. [buzzer] >> she wrote that women cannot rear children while maintaining a challenging career. >> oh, yeah, we've definitely proven that to be true. >> clearly. >> where are your children? yes, do you know where your children are? >> just bang loser in general. >> take the kids a spinning class. [ laughter ] >> and yell at them. faster! faster! >> as a general rule, your bad behavior is not my responsibility. >> right. >> and that's, i mean that's the whole concept behind this piece is that somehow women are responsible for men behaving badly. >> right. >> i mean, there are plenty of poorly behaved women, too. >> right. >> but you take responsibility for your own actions. >> right. >> really? oh ok. >> not you jim. >> not you jim. >> there's a village taking responsibility for you guys.
[ laughter ] >> a village of hot chicks. [ laughter ] >> jim's the throwback. [ growling ] >> it's a little like the feminist liberal show, it's like madman over there. [ whistling cat call ] >> drag that gorgeous butt in here. >> all right. jackie, we talked about this last night. it's weird when sometimes there's a thread of truth and we go yeah, clearly i believe some men have a hard time with strong women. >> absolutely. i truly believe that. i think there are men who are not comfortable with women who are their equal. they don't want to be with somebody who may challenge them intellectually or maybe a true partner as opposed to somebody who is i hate to use the word subservient. >> i know some woman who have that damsel in distress thing.
some women can screw that you by being too strong and competent. that's not our responsibility. you also point out marriage is not mandatory. it's not mandatory. >> you don't have to get married. this woman makes it out like everybody wants to get married and, you know, you would have that ideal marriage if you just sit down, shut up and bake something. i mean. >> i have that one port card, why do i have to get married? i didn't do anything wrong. >> i mean, it assumes so many traditional social norms that it's so out of date and it's like this woman has not emerged from her home in the last 50 years. >> she's been too busy baking. >> it's insulting. frankly, if she's actually written the books that she said she's written, then she's a working woman. >> why isn't she at home taking care of the kids. >> she's like dr. laura making a
multi-million dollars a year job and telling women they should people bad if they're working. >> you can't have this kind of conversation and make generalizations. there are all types of different people and there are some men who love strong, independent women and they find that attractive and sexy and want to be with a woman who is a true partner and would prefer to be with somebody who lets them make a decision. it's a preference thing. >> there's a difference between that and the point of her piece which is that women all of us in general are not being subservient enough to push and radical ideas like that. >> she says i've spoken with hundreds if not thousands of people. there's a big difference then hundreds and thousands. >> that's a big sampling there dozens, if not millions. >> she's come to the conclusion that there is this subset of men who don't want to get married because women aren't the women they used to be. it's so insulting on every level. part of the piece i point out is
if there is a woman in the change of a command at fox.com who approved this piece she should be ashamed of herself and she should fire that man. i'm sure he's a real peach. >> you have a hard time with strong women and that's why some women make other choices. but my point. [ laughter ] >> hows that working out for you, steph. >> that's not working out so well either. i might be coming back to your side. [ laughter ] >> i was like -- i was like jackie, i'm burning my bra it's a sports bra. it's taking a while and it's kind of smelly like sex with men. sorry, i'm the only les on this

in with romney. they didn't split their conviction as usual. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: yeah, so instead of fighting them for a tax increase on the top 2% that america supports, let's gently go over that fiscal slope and then. >> stephanie: it's more like a fiscal bunny hill. i think with a good flying sauce as her weeding fine and go right into january. >> caller: fuzzy too right? >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: gently go over to face asking slope and give 98% of americans a tax decrease and everybody will get what the american people wanted. >> stephanie: yeah within i have to say we're going to have a big discussion about this this morning. there's a lot of interesting different sides you're with patrick murray. senator murray is saying it's not a cliff it's a slope. he's saying it can be fixed fairly quickly in january. >> what we don't want is extending the bush tax cuts again, because that's what put us into this situation in the
first place. >> stephanie: eric cantor on fox news is lying. what's the chance? it's like there wasn't an election of some sort where mitt romney ideas were squarely rejected. as the caller said, many, many points ahead in every poll that's out today about people that want the rich to pay their fair share as a way to solve this dilemma. eric cantor said obama should put obamacare on the table. >> no. >> stephanie: he said it is the entitlement that is driving up the national debt. >> no, it isn't. >> stephanie: it doesn't go fully into effect until 2014. the congressional budget office said the debt will go up if it's repealed. >> what do they know about the budget. >> stephanie: the american people rejected the big budget. more people voted for democrats it's because of the
gerrymandering and redistricting that there remains. paul ryan tried this, too, you know somebody asked him right president won every battleground, he can tolland slide, don't you think that's a mandate. no no, because they also reelected a republican house. no, first of all you lost seats, less people voted for republicans in congress than democrats. he knows very well it's because of redistricting. >> in both elections obama won by a wider margin than bush won both of his election he is and bush referred to both of his as a mandate. obama won by a wider margin. >> mandate sounds kind of gay. >> stephanie: isn't that wonderful, eddie. >> isn't that wonderful eddie? i won't go! >> stephanie: i wouldn't go! they don't like you. ok, 29 minutes after the hour. more on the fiscal cliff as we continue on the stephanie miller show.
>> we pulled the rug out from under you, sorry. >> stephanie: some how they have to some degree won the spin people when i'm upset. do you share the sense of outrage that they're doing this, this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the mob learned from wall st., not vice versa.

>> the avenue of the americas. come crawling back to the avenue of the americas. >> stephanie: charlie pierce had great stuff. you know what drives me crazy? not just what you expect on fox news how the mainstream media buys into spin so easily, particularly on this fiscal cliff thing. romney-like proposal increases a big concession. it's all of this, oh, we all need the bipartisanship, that's what the american people want. basically, the grover norquist pledge stuff it's just a load of [bleep] because they're making noises as if raising taxes on the rich is not and thank god, the white house is already calling them on it. but anyways think progress said voters rejected romney's tax plan and president obama won reelection. republican's expressed interest in raising ref too. you go they are disavowing the pledge and coming to the table
and blah blah blah. their public concessions the kind of policy voters overwhelmingly rejected. how do you lose in a landslide and say how about mitt romney's plan. [ ♪ magic wand ♪ ] >> how about that. what do you think of that? that guy me. not president. >> tax reform that does not increase marge national tax rates on the richest americans but eliminates tax loopholes. paul ryan's budget, also the loser of the last election. on one hand, somebody wrote republicans would get the tax breaks they want, republicans would also get the entitlement changes they want. the party and media are presenting it as a big concession and urge democrats to back it. this is why, you know, charlie
wrote a great piece. don't you think president obama should bring in mitt romney. >> no! >> stephanie: what? no! >> he's the last person he should bring in. >> stephanie: that's the premise you are starting from? the pitch is very similar to the plan presented by romney which is supposed to boost growth while closing loopholes. fortunately president obama has rejected this kind of approach. i'm glad the white house is calling them on it saying what i will not do is have a process that is vague saying we are sort of going to raise revenuear close loopholes that have not been identified. he won this election on arithmetic. the white house said it has not seen a realistic proposal from republicans. he keeps saying the math doesn't work. you can't raise enough revenue. obama would be open to proposals
so long as the tax rate remains on the table. carney, the president's carney said social security shouldn't be on the table. it is not currently a driver of the deficit. that's an economic fact. >> we've been open to revenue by closinging loopholes as long as it's tied to spending cuts. >> as long as it's mitt romney's plan. that's what we're for. >> stephanie: what? you're acting like, it's almost like a hostage crisis. like they don't have the gun and are issuing demands. like what? >> what are you talking about? >> stephanie: exactly. mike in philadelphia, you're on the "stephanie miller show." hi, mike. >> caller: hi, steph how are you doing? >> stephanie: good, go ahead. >> caller: eric con tore brought obamacare back on the table. they won't leave that alone. >> stephanie: no, they are just the sorest losers in the world.
it's like he won he won at the supreme court he won at the ballot box again moving on, we are not repealing obamacare. like really? the white house warned monday that american consumers will spend $200 billion less if the looming fiscal cliff is not averted and tax hikes are not spread across the board. the economy would take a hit of $500 billion, probably sending the country back boo recession. i get what the white house is saying and what people like patty murray are saying about how we should negotiate this and whether it's a cliff or a slope. >> it's a financial cliff claven. >> slope. >> i think even if it is a slope, if we go over the fiscal slope, it will do a lot of damage. >> right it could -- the markets will react, freak out. >> that's where the damage will
be done. >> i love politico, a growing block of emboldened emboldened liberals. [ screaming ] >> say they're not afraid to watch defense spending get gouged. [ scream ] >> stephanie: if republicans captain see their way toward additional revenues then we're better off going over the cliff and readdressing this with a better congress in january. >> it's the republicans holding the country hostage. >> they're saying it's more of a slope where the economic effects will be handled gradually. we're going to have a whole new congress. >> more democrats. >> we have the technology.
we can make them better. >> stephanie: we built that. >> yes we did. we gave it a bionic eye apparently. >> stephanie: right. patty will have to move her hair to hear you. >> you said what now, mitt romney's plan? no. no. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: what kind of budget geeks, we just have that sound effect. >> it's come in handy more often than not. >> stephanie: i go like this and you do that. >> that was the bionic man effect. >> stephanie: hers is like ding-ding-ding, like sonar. [ dinging ] >> republicans would most likely bear the public blame if policy
makers deadlock. only 29% would blame the president. it's very important that we hang in there to get the representative opponents peter welch from vermont. he said i prefer an agreement before january 1. >> stephanie: i'm a libra, the white house says one thing and i'm like yes murray says one thing, i'm like yes! i can't decide. murray said we will reach a point at the end of the year where all the tax cuts expire and start over next year and everything we do will be a tax cult for whatever we put together.% that may be the way to oh get past the this. it does take all the bargaining power away from them. you have no choice about the bush tax cuts.
>> which were set to expire two years ago! >> stephanie: interesting 2013 without a budget would not produce an economic clamty. >> it's more of a claven. >> stephanie: it's more of a financial cliff claven. cheers, everybody. >> if memory serves, the umbilical cord is 90% potassium. >> stephanie: that's enough of that. what's that? >> if chimps were 32% slower, they would have better public relations. >> stephanie: hi, derick. >> caller: the only thing more ridiculous than the article that
jackies was talking my brother actually believe that is wholeheartedly. his wife is trained to be that he is the head of the household and she must ask his permission on any money she spends. it's crazy. i married a strong woman because i think it's a partnership and i love my wife. any time my wife speaks out of turn, he gives her the evil eye like aren't you supposed to be poking out babies in the kitchen? >> stephanie: he sounds like a dream. >> do that ear thing again.

like they're a savior. >> caller: i'm here in chicago and see it all the time. i just see guys. >> stephanie: chicago's full of hot messes. >> caller: hot messes that could make a positive stew. >> stephanie: i'll come to chicago for some hot mess. [ laughter ]. all right. >> been responsible even as we remain firm on this point no tax increases now for spending cuts. it won't materialize later. the american people have seen that game before, and they won't be fooled again. >> stephanie: you lost! what is he talking about? i just love the way the point they're negotiating from. >> again the bush tax cuts were meant to expire two years ago. >> stephanie: because of the impact it would have on the deficit. senator harry reid. >> the senator has spoken and president obama has spoken. he's promised he will not sign any bill that mortgages our
future for hand outs to the wealthiest 2% of americans. i only hope the house members have been listening. >> hello then the president's carney child in. jay carney. >> some of of the comments you mentioned are welcome and they represent what we hope is a difference in tone and approach. >> stephanie: it's one thing to sound like your compromising on television and another thing to actually do something. nails it, nails it would you like the fun facts? >> absolutely. >> stephanie: the myth of the obama cave-in. i love john fugelsang but the joke he does about back ma makes folks scream. we disagree.
>> liberals are allowed to disagree. >> stephanie: no we're not they're loud to do what i say. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: with the cliff looming, the president capitulated during the last tax cut fight. i'll read the cogent parts to you. >> she's on a roll. >> stephanie: i'm on a roll. when the germans attacked pearl harbor, i'm on a roll. obama didn't wave the flag in 2010. he turned a faceoff into an opportunity to enact a second stimulus that he otherwise could not get past senate republicans. his failure was that he failed to convey to the world that he jujitsu's g.o.p.ers. did i say that right? ok.
>> jujitsu is different. >> brazilian. >> it's japanese. >> stephanie: different kind of bikini washing entirely. >> what? >> stephanie: brazilian wax. he goes back, the president caved and everybody repeats it. he said there's a lot of different facing involved back then. solidarity on the gop side but not the democrats. we didn't get a public option, because democrats get ascared. several democratic senate candidates told horary read and the white house they preferred not to vote on any legislation that kept the middle class tax cuts alive. they feared the gop would brand them, this is where the white house, the options at the time, there was -- they worried that
the gop was hell bent on winning this came of chicken tax cuts would end while unemployment was ending. they said the stimulus didn't work. people buy that. that is proveably not true. obama lost that message war. that's the one thing he is saying. white house aids were blunt we're going to have to give up on killing tax cuts for the rich. getting more for our people is more important than getting less for our people. any fight in december could
quite possibly only until a new congress came to town. he couldn't have gotten anything else done that he got done over don't ask don't tell. obama went after a deal. the package would extend the bush tax cut for two years extend the tax cuts for the wealthy. obama had won 238 of stimulus for yielding on 114 billion in high income tax cuts. he says clearly obama had gotten the better deal. the public had been seen this over tax cuts answered over that obama had not gotten what he
wanted. axelrod and other aids were not allowed to admit in public that the president had achieved a second stimulus. that's part of why the economy has gotten better and better and we've had all these months of job growth. corn finishes by saying what happened is not an indication that obama is likely to yield in a new faceoff but he will be assessing the dynamics in a new grid lock. that's not caving in, that's governing. much more as we continue on the "stephanie miller show." >> putting people out of work. >> stephanie: we need to get rid of all of them.

perfect world. >> stephanie: susan rice goes to meet with mccain and lindsey graham and now they're blasting her. she literally did the talking points the intelligence community gave her. i don't understand the controversy. >> caller: they only do one thing and they've done it from the beginning of obama's, you know presidency. they just have to, the chew toy is a very apt metaphor. they must never let go. they don't know anything about subtlety and it's sad. it holds the hole legislative procedure hostage. >> stephanie: it seems to make them really mad it's supposed to be a game but they won't give up. >> caller: it keeps their teeth white, though. >> stephanie: right.
steven weber is starring in lips together teeth apart right here in los angeles. >> caller: los angeles theater works, that's right a gorgeous play december 6-9. it's for radio theater of the mind. it's a gorgeous play. it's -- i won't go into it except that it is beautiful and funny, and very pertinent. >> stephanie: well, i was going to say it takes place in the allen beach house a brother and sister, their respective spouses gathering for the fourth of july and hilarity ensues. >> caller: it's a house one of the owners brothers died in. it has beautifully written dialogue. again, it is funny and it is
ruminative and sad and provocative. >> stephanie: in a magical one degree of separation. christy miller once returned my dog to me. she's so tall, i just saw a head over my gate. i was like really, tall pretty woman here with my dog. >> caller: just with her verge hands. [ laughter ] >> like a backhoe. she picked up a large st. bernard with one hand. >> hey lady, here's your dog. >> caller: powerful and sexy? she is awesome. that sounds like a powerhouse duo. >> caller: come one come owl. maybe cliff claven will make an appearance. >> the people are in sane. >> stephanie: we have decided to call it the fiscal cliff claven. >> caller: that's just an example of another kind of
hyperbole that this faction uses to make them relevant. right? it allows them to operate in that atmosphere that they've created. >> stephanie: right. it is actually like a cliff claven argument. it's like how about if we do mitt romney's plan? >> what's that all about? >> caller: certainly no. >> stephanie: by the way, we were just talking about jonathan chase's piece about how the generations are screwed. they think it's bad now, it's going to get worse for republicans. for old homophobic republicans. >> caller: all their actions since obama's been elected although know is almost borderline insane approach to this country. the weird thing is that almost half of the country buys into
it. this is the kind of thing that works. >> stephanie: their strategy seems to be insult half the company and try to prevent those people from voting. they just admitted that voter suppression was the goal of the new laws. >> caller: it's so easy to be homophobic easy to be prejudice, bullying, it requires a lot more effort to be subtle and live in the gray area that our country and that all the issues have evolved into. >> he said, sad tired wearing a suit. >> stephanie: thanks to reduced early voting hours voter purges voter restrictions, in a report now in the palm beach post several prominent florida republicans are now admitting these election laws were geared toward suppressing minority and democratic votes. >> shocking. >> stephanie: yes well, shocking to some degree that
some republicans admitted it, i think. scott's administration said the new laws were meant to curb in-person voter fraud. >> caller: it's the same kind of audacity of saying and doing things that are so obviously geared towards suppressing the vote or anything. it's so obvious that it's almost -- people are shocked. the opposition is too shocked to call it what it is. they try to give it some credibility when it has none. >> stephanie: one republican consultant confirmed that in flu entell consultants in florida were in tent on beating back the democratic turnout after they saw what happened in 2008. the consultant has to remain anonymous said black voters were a concern. the cutting out of the sunday before election day was a target because that's when black churches organize themselves. >> caller: it's a very
worthwhile cause if you have to bully and suppress to get your agenda across. >> stephanie: rather than come up with policies for constituents, it's how about keeping those people from voting. i think it blew up in their face this time. >> caller: do you like my suit? >> i do. you're so handsome. >> caller: i like your hat. >> stephanie: people listening on the radio are like i want to see his suit. >> caller: it's theater of the mind. >> stephanie: karen you're on. >> caller: you kind of stole my thing that i was going to say i think we should stop calling it a fiscal cliff and call it the fiscal bluff. >> stephanie: i'm sorry. caught me. caught me. >> there's a road in the fiscal bluff. >> stephanie: you're on with steven. >> caller: howdy everybody.
i remember you on wings too by the way. >> thanks. >> stephanie: well join the club. >> actually my favorite, i watch the reruns. my question is this, how can a guy named grover have so much power over these republicans? >> stephanie: yeah, that's what i mean, one republican said this was a pledge for a congress that was 20 years ago. why are people still pretending it or he is rely at this point? >> hello there! he does grover impressions too. >> i'm grover. >> stephanie: he's delightful. he just is. by the way one other magical degree of stephanie miller separation a couple of weeks ago, i got an email from amy she likes watching the beach she says. >> who doesn't? she does it beautifully.
didn't the daily show do a section on grover norquist that he came up with this whole pledge idea when he was like in the seventh great. he literally did. >> stephanie: that's the kind of reasoning. go do this, mad. >> stop, don't pay her now and everything gets better. >> i guess his father was an anti tax activist and beat it into his son and grover is moving on. >> stephanie: sounds like he needs to beat a pillow with a tennis racket to deal with some of his daddy issues. >> dad why did you do this to me? >> stephanie: clint in florida. >> caller: hi. >> stephanie: hi, go ahead. >> caller: i'd like to say that i could probably make a fortunate selling chastity belts in germany. i'd be a lesser person without
my wife. she is very strong. i need someone to, you know, shut me up when i say something or do something wrong. i need somebody to challenge me. >> stephanie: hot right? >> caller: i saw exactly what this woman's talking about. my entire family's like that. i just refuse to participate. >> stephanie: that like promise keeper kind of stuff, right? >> caller: exactly. i mean, the husbands would sit down and wait for the wives to make them a plate of food at dinner and witch of them if there was too much or not enough of one thing just to make them go back again. it's just ridiculous. >> stephanie: that's a fabulous story. >> heart warming. >> men are almost obsolete now. we don't necessarily need them to hunt and gather. we don't need them to pro create. >> stephanie: i need them. >> you need furniture moved
occasionally, you need toilets unblocked and that's about it. >> and kill the oh occasional spider. >> don't kill spiders. >> stephanie: that's a liberal man. 17 minutes after the hour. kids, go to meeting, i can't say enough about it. you know, i don't want to mention names, anything else, the audio and video quality? no. go to meeting crystal clear quality. tog meeting with h.d. faces. i'm brave enough at my age to be seen in h.d., you can too. we express so much in person with the raise of an eyebrow. i know what that means. >> the flare of aeneas industrial. >> i have to take my jacket off. >> you can see that in crystal here h.d. >> my every crevice. >> stephanie: you can meet

>> stephanie: stop bashing obama and ruining our family name. dad! stop that. >> you're embarrassing me. >> stephanie: according to the news his three eldest children held a preelection meeting to tell him to tone down his anti obama rhetoric. they said he's always been out spoken and likes attention. dad, we know you're an attention whore and all can you shut your pie hole? trump denyion the existence have any such meeting, of course, saying the rumors are completely untrue, it's a huge lie. >> huge, huge, huge lie. the kids love me. hugely. >> stephanie: i tend to believe it. >> you're fired. >> stephanie: you're fired at my children. i tend to believe it don't you? he is the douche that's ruining the trump name. >> he's ryaning the trump name.

and i had a question about this fox article you were talking about. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: i thought i grew up in the 60's and 70's and i thought we were making really good progress toward the equality until really like this congress game in in 2010, and then it seems like we're litigating it all over again. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: i -- my wife and i got married in 1976, and i don't believe that we would have made it this far if we hadn't been partners the whole time. i mean, it never would have happened. and that's my comment. >> stephanie: i think john, partnership means a different thing for everybody. that's what marriage is. everybody is free to make up an idea of how a partnership works. this article was basically blaming women for men not wanting to get married because we're too, i don't know, we're too independent, something. >> you know why because you've
forsaken the bustle, the use of the bustle. bring the bustle back. [ laughter ] >> caller: put the bustle back. >> listen to me very carefully put the candle back! >> in the bustle. >> on the bustle. >> stephanie: steven weber, you are married i'm guessing mrs. weber is probably equally as awesome as mr. weber. >> she is way more awesome. her name is juliette and she's an amazing remarkable woman who is barely putting up with me. >> stephanie: the sound of a thousand, a million hearts breaking in america. >> well, we'll see. >> stephanie: frank in l.a., you're on the "stephanie miller show." hi frank. >> caller: hi, you know, nothing irritates me more than when people say they are going to vote for the green party. not that i hate the green party but they're splitting the vote and they don't understand it. the republicans hold their nose
right down the line and win election. there's a minority party in this country. they don't understand that you can't get 100% of what you want and you can't get anything unless you're elected. because the naderites voted for him. the trick was for john ellis the first cousin of bush said that gore won and naderites said the vote for nader, gore was winning. they told a big lie. >> stephanie: and also, they didn't count the votes. there's that. >> ended up in chunks in the bottom of swamps. >> stephanie: in camaros of friends of jeb bush. ♪

>> on her eye? >> look, if you have a stay, that is an old wive's you're. it's like a poultice. >> caller: i was calling about the fiscal clop. i feel like the republicans may not go about saying it, but i believe they're going to try to make more on the president's second term intentionally and i don't think they'll cooperate with anything. they're talking about stop talking about although women's issues and social issues, but that's their platform. >> stephanie: i agree. they were trying to do everything they could. now they'll spend the next four years being bitter that they weren't able to stop him. >> caller: that's exactly what they'll do, no matter what comes up, they will find a way to
end-run around it and try to make him treat him importantly. >> stephanie: look what they did this morning. susan rice after all the awful things they said, which are completely unfounded and proven untrue, she is gracious enough, diplomatic if i may use the word and now they go on t.v. and blast her again. >> caller: i believe they'll do that the entire second material. that's their plan. they may not announce it. people need to like with your show and everything, you brick everything out to light as to what it is and people really need to pay attention. they're just going to keep doing this stuff and say it's not us, you know. >> stephanie: mitch mcconn them's new plan is to make the president a two term president and he'll succeed at that finally. on to plan b. laura in washington, you're on, hi laura. >> caller: hi, first of all steven i'm so sorry europe not on the twitter anymore because
all my coworkers think i have daily seizures from the laughter. >> i apologize. i needed to do it. >> caller: and i have a suggestion for how to deal with this fiscal cliff. some of the republicans announced saying they will wheel and deal chewedding the tax hikes if we will think about entitlement reformal. i say we do that, since entilement reform is mostly what they mean is social security. in exchange for tax hikes, we will cult every penny from social security that adds to the deficit. >> stephanie: see what did you there, because it doesn't add $1 penny to the deficit. you're tricky. >> caller: they have to explain to the american people that it doesn't add to the deficit. >> stephanie: right, you are a scamp, laura and that's good plan, thank you. >> might i say if you miss the words of steven weber tweeting, you can still read his occasional column at the huffing

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: they're like a leprechaun farting gold dust. mike in massachusetts. >> caller: i'm a first time caller. i just wanted to say i was going to call about rick scott and the whole like voter suppression thing but like listening to you guys talking about everything made me realize like there's a much larger issue here which i feel like, you know, now that progressives or democrats now what you want to call us, we really need to step up to the plate right now and wait until the next election to get active again, it's just like i mean all the stuff is crazy. i mean, you hear in the news how
republicans are, you know, are soul searching and stuff and you realize like nothing's changing. their still doing the same tactics. >> stephanie: mike, we need to keep saying this. it's what i keep talking about all this talk, that kind of sounds like conciliation, they are talking about loopholes and other little slights of hand that won't actually raise revenue. >> caller: they're saying like, oh republicans they view their stances just like more of a marketing issue like oh, really if we just market our ideas in a different package then people will like us, but it's like they don't understand that. >> no, it's not just mitt romney. it's not just todd akin or richard murdoch it's all the same policies, isn't it? >> you're asking me? >> stephanie: yes i'm sorry
it's your turn. >> i was just thinking, the good old days. look, like i said, they just have one thing that they want to do and they're just trying to dress it up differently to appeal to the demographic that, you know, that won the election, you know, that won the election for obama but huh? >> stephanie: i'm sorry. i knew you were thinking. >> a better time. >> stephanie: you can do your old man. >> back then, yes. i drove a edsel. i was the only one drinking my sassparilla. i have my arm around betty lou. >> do you have get someone who says i'm a last-time caller? no, although some of them are. >> back in moments with actor steven miller. >> oh, god that feels weird and good all at once.

attack. they just keep repeating it, because that's what they do. they're in lockstep and they're fantastic at it. >> lindsey graham said they got bad information and said maybe they shouldn't have gotten any information at all. even condoleezza rice said there is the fog of war. he said he's troubled with rice's response. >> i bet they don't even believe that. they believe the company line. that's what they do. they hope it will work. >> stephanie: she thought rice should have asked more pointed
questions about the attack in advance of her television appearance. intelligence agencies give you all the intelligence they had and you didn't ask more questions. >> is there anything classified you'd like me to share. >> makes no difference. makes no difference! >> don't cry! >> there there. >> rest your head in the crook of my freckled arm. >> barbara in texas. >> caller: this will be my second and last time calling you. >> stephanie: i don't know, go ahead. >> caller: ok. i was calling about the story that you mentioned at the top of the hour, the first hour about the fox news story about men don't want to get married because of women are too. >> stephanie: right. >> caller: ok. i was looking at the daily code's website and according to them, they said the person who wrote that article is a niece of
phyllis shalley. >> stephanie: that explains a lot. you know i shook her hand by accident once. she came up to me and said i heard you were here. i campaigned for gold water. hi i'm phyllis shafley. you set the woman's movement back a thousand years. >> halli i once found a little pile of shafley. i had to scrape it off. >> stephanie: wow, there's a husband spanking his wife. if your husband ever finds out you're not store testing for fresher coffee.
eek! is it always funny to kill a woman? this is a smoking commercial. blow in her face and she'll follow you anywhere. it's a man blowing smoke in a woman's face. >> that's true. it helped my first wife's complexion. do you remember that? it burn issued her black heads. >> stephanie: here's one of a wife with affecter duster. the man says the harder she works, the cuter she looks. all right. i can't take anymore of this now. all right. dana in maryland, you're on the "stephanie miller show" with steven weber. hi dana. >> caller: hi, good morning everybody. >> stephanie: good morning. >> caller: steven, i'll take that vick's rub over here. >> only if you're congested. >> caller: i'm just switch over, i'll send you oh, europe not tweeting, i don't know how to get my address to you. >> we're tracing your signal. we know exactly where you are.
